How we fight for our clients’ rights

| Sep 20, 2019 | nursing home abuse and neglect

Sometimes, the people we trust to care for our loved ones end up being unworthy of that trust. At Cromartie Law, we understand it is difficult to believe that experienced, certified caretakers could fail to the extent that they injure their wards. However, we also know that negligent nursing homes, day care centers and doctors in Virginia might use their position of trust in order to discourage people from seeking compensation for injuries. That is why we stand up for our clients and make sure justice is served.

This often requires persistence, attention to detail and an aggressive pursuit of the truth. Here are a few ways we represent our clients.

We listen. When it comes to injuries, we believe an injured person is the authority. Our clients’ perspectives of their suffering and pain form the cornerstones of our cases. We know that negligent nursing homes or care centers could be shrouding the truth and attempting to downplay human suffering for their own material gain.

We uncover patterns. Most injuries are part of a pattern of neglect. If our client had the first injury caused by an individual or business, then we must assume that many others simply got lucky. We look into the facts of each case with an eye towards uncovering patterns of neglect that set people up for serious injuries.

We follow through. Injury cases in Virginia sometimes take a long time. We advocate for our clients every step of the way. We keep them informed of important updates and advise on all relevant decisions that need to be made.

Standing up against someone you used to trust is not easy. However, you should not expect them to make it any easier on you — they typically have too much to lose. You do not have to face this process alone. For more information, please continue to our main website.
